Trees planted in recent seasons
1
5 × Bramley Apple (in 22-23)
Malus domestica 'Bramley Seedling'

Apple trees are often managed to maximise fruit production, so they usually remain relatively small. Their pink-tinged white blossom in spring can rival that of cherry, and the fruit ripens through the summer, often ripening in late September.

There are dozens of different varieties that might offer whiter blossom, earlier fruit, and apples to suit every palate.

Bramley is the most popular cooking apple. It produces large green apples that retain their body when cooked. It is the classic fruit for making apple pie.

2
5 × Elstar (in 22-23)
Malus domestica 'Elstar'

Apple trees are often managed to maximise fruit production, so they usually remain relatively small. Their pink-tinged white blossom in spring can rival that of cherry, and the fruit ripens through the summer, often ripening in late September.

There are dozens of different varieties that might offer whiter blossom, earlier fruit, and apples to suit every palate.

A dessert apple producing a heavy and regular fruit crop. The crisp apples produced by this variety are greenish-yellow flushed with red and have an intense honeyed flavour.

Season of use from late October to December.

Ultimate height: 4-8m.

3
6 × Pear (in 22-23)
Pyrus communis 'Conference'

The domestic pear tree has the potential to become a large tree which can produce mountains of fruit.

Their white spring blossom rivals that of apples and cherries, and when they are not in flower, look out for small glossy leaves and deeply fissured bark on older trees.

Environmental Benefits

Trees provide more benefits the older and larger they are.

Cherry Plum is our Tree of the Month

Perhaps the first blossom trees most people will encounter not far from their own front doors are the Purple Cherry Plums.

Widely planted across London, they have already started showing their blossom, which in fact, is a little later this year than in some years. There are two cultivars you are likely to come across, 'Pissardii' with pale pink, almost white flowers (like the ones above), and 'Nigra' with pinker blooms. The flowers of these trees are perhaps their loveliest attribute, they are followed by very deep purple leaves that can look a little foreboding, especially when they are planted in groups or avenues.

Do you know that you can adopt a tree near you for free?
